    My new P-3 Pro battery won't upgrade, (I still get the red "battery requires new upgrade").
    Did a search and I have followed all the videos on this forum. The SD card with the latest bin file IS in the bird:
    Firm 1.3.20 - App 2.0.2 .Original battery is A-Okay. Have tried updating the battery with the RC both on and off. Nada. Can I fly with that new battery? I'm thinking no.

    Yup, the SD card had NO TXT file on it. I formated it and reinstalled the firmware.
    Put it in the bird.
    BINGO - success ...
